in 2012? susan is in baltimore. hi susan. caller: hello. no i'm not going to stick with president obama this time. i feel that he's creating such a divisive atmosphere in our country and a very -- i'm very concerned for that, being the person who we want in our leadership. i feel like he has not shown us any substantive plans in the four years that he's been in business as the president, and instead, it seems like he wants to be rehraeblgt dollars, he picks -- reelected, he picks hot button issues such as will and illegal aliens, and he just starts divisiveness and causes peoples' emotions, the people who fall in those categories, i'm one of those people, and i have children and they are in one of those categories, and he doesn't have a plan, he puts it temporarily together and touts that as plan, but it's not, so that he can get reelected. again, if he was doing a good reelection campaign and maybe used things like that but also had demonstrated over the last almost four years some good, strong substantive plans that brought the economy to our country and brought the people together, w
, that was thrilling. my father had been mayor of baltimore. one of the leaders of the kennedy campaign in maryland. the first night we got there, it was the dinner for him. we all saw the president, the family very differently. after he made his speech at the stadium, which was stark, no one ever did that, fabulous seats. my father want to go to a famous restaurant in los angeles. we did. my father said this is really an expensive restaurant, how did you choose the restaurant. compared to baltimore, it was very expensive. i remember him not complaining, but making the point when the door opened and here comes senator kennedy. he came right over, what did you think of the speech? ask me what i thought. all of a sudden the prices came way down. >> suddenly it was not worth it. take a one of the most memorable single images of this convention ran on the front of "the new york time" was you with the women members of the house. but was a like to stand up there? >> it was pretty exciting. that was only half of those we have in the house. it was pretty exciting because of the connection. it was so exciti
issues. ed is an independent in baltimore. caller: good morning and thank you for c-span. the first action of the violence was an organized protest stemming most likely from 9/11. we found a video made over a year ago to put the blame on it. it is a reactionary congress here in the u.s. that all of a sudden wants to do something about it or reactionary administration. these were planned protests, not grass roots outbreaks of violence. we have blamed it on a year-old video. eventually we will lose some rights because of its. host: the occupy wall street movement is one year old today. this is the question put forth by "usa today" -- arkansas, john, a republican. caller: good morning. this particular question raises another interesting question. who is this u.s. government that will control free speech? is it the same u.s. government that allows illegals to access our education, medication, housing, employment sectors? is it the same u.s. government that limits the futures of 1 million aborted babies each year although 50% of the people are against it? the same government that forces
in the papers this morning. here's the baltimore sun -- this i romney was in california and spoke before a hispanic group there and then the video came out. he had a press conference last night around 10:00 p.m. eastern to respond to the video. [video clip] >> it is not elegantly stated. i am speaking off the cuff in response to a question. i'm sure i could of stated it more clearly and in a more effective way than i did in a setting like that. i'm sure i will point that out as time goes on. we don't even have the question in that snippet nor the full response. the person who has the video, i wish they would put out the full material. but it is a message i will carry and continue to carry, which is the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes, because my discussion about lowering taxes is not attractive to them, therefore i am not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. this is really a discussion about the political process, of winning the election. i want to help all americans have a bright and prosperous future.

baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east. [video clip] >> i believe that this message must be rejected by all those who respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism."

. baltimore book fest. tomorrow, richmond, virginia, at noon. and then in the evening i'll speak in norfolk. then on monday night, we'll be at virginia tech, which is very interesting, going back to the scene of the massacre. i'll be speaking there, you know, 32 people were killed there. and colin goddard is coming with us. he was one of those victims. he was shot four times. i'm also looking forward to interviewing a professor there. and then we're on to colorado for the big debate. we're going to be doing something interesting. we're both speaking on the silent majority election 2012 tour, but also we do this daily, radio and television broadcast that airs on over 1,100 stations, so we have to do the broadcast wherever we are. and being on the scene has been remarkable. i'll give you one example. we, last week, were in freeport, illinois, and got a truck, and we went to the stevenson fairgrounds. it was right across the street from a plant which happened to be owned by bain capital. across the street, the workers, the employees of this plant who worked there like, oh, dot turner for 4 ye

after watching a baseball game in baltimore. he was thrown 30 feet in the air on impact and scraped along another 20 feet on the pavement after he hit the ground. i ran to his side and held him and called his name, but he was limp and still, without breath or pulse. his eyes were open with the empty stare of death, and we prayed, the two of us, there in the gutter, with only my voice. his injuries, inside and out, were massive, and for terrible days he lingered between life and death. tipper and i spent the next thirty days and nights at his bedside. our family was lifted and healed, in no small measure by the love, compassion and prayers of thousands of people, most of whom we never even knew. albert is plenty brave and strong, and with the support of three wonderful sisters-- karenna, kristin, and sarah-- and two loving parents who helped him with his exercises every morning and prayed for him every night, he pulled through. and now, thank god, he has fully recovered, and he runs and plays and torments his older sisters like any little boy.
